Reportable Diseases, Emergency Illnesses and Health Conditions, and Reportable Laboratory Findings for 2022

In accordance with Conn. Gen. Stat. §19a-2a and Conn. Agencies Regs. §19a-36-A2, the Commissioner of the Department of Public Health (DPH) shall issue a list of reportable diseases, emergency illnesses and health conditions and a list of reportable laboratory findings on an annual basis. For 2022, there are no changes to the lists, aside from some minor technical edits and clarifications.

Disease reporting is required under Conn. Agencies Regs. §19a-36-A3 and Conn. Agencies Regs. §19a-36-A4 (see back of form) and Conn. Gen. Stat. §19a-2a and §19a-215 Statutes, using the designated forms. To reduce the use of paper forms and improve the timeliness of disease reporting, we encourage providers to use secure electronic fax (efax) for reporting instead of mailing.
